Rights of Prisoners

People in prison are under the absolute authority and, therefore, protection of the State. It is the responsibility of the State to ensure that conditions and treatment in places of detention do not create additional difficulties and constraints and do not exceed the unavoidable level of suffering inherent in detention. In the past, problems such as insufficient natural and artificial lighting, ventilation, overcrowding, as well as insufficient duration of walks have been identified in prisons.

Example: My best friend is imprisoned. I‘m not allowed to visit them — the prison management insists that I am not a family member, so I don’t meet the criteria.
